    Great advice. I have just started some sessions with personal trainer, so that makes me keep appointments. She lets me go at my own pace.
    I find I can restrict calories by filling half my plate with vegetables. Didn't realise until recently how fattening fruit is!

    Great tips!!! Encouragement at the basic level goes a long way to help many different people with different needs. Well done. - 1/25/2010 7:06:50 PM
  • LOVE this - I really needed to be reminded that there is a measured way to do this - start slowly and build up seems to be the message. I have real hope that this will help me greatly. Thank you. - 1/25/2010 6:40:19 PM
  • I'm with womanofthewind - to successfully lose weight you do need to limit your calories (even when you workout)! I do not mean you should starve yourself - but go for a good, healthy range. - 1/25/2010 5:49:46 PM
  • Great article. Thanks - 1/25/2010 4:52:10 PM
    Wonderful article! Thank you so much. All the right advise for me. This one I will print out and put where I can see it. - 1/25/2010 1:50:12 PM
    I was okay with the article until it talked about limiting calories. It should have been more specific. Limiting calories is healthy, OVERlimiting them is unhealthy. The distinction should have been made more clearer. - 1/25/2010 12:11:46 PM
  • What a great article! Plan it, start slowly, be accountable, grow to love it. - 1/25/2010 11:09:41 AM
  • Thank you for this great post! I have so much trouble finishing ANYthing that my husband calls me "the queen of unfinished business." I say I'm ready to relinquish the title, but I keep making the same choices. This is very helpful. Also, since I have fibromyalgia, "putting the pain into perspective" is good advice. Because, the truth is this: there is no such thing as a pain free day for me...I just have to stick to what I know I can do, and take much smaller steps than someone else. What I have to do is put the pain into the perspective of my life now, not what it was like when I didn't hurt. I have never really thought of it that way before just now. - 1/25/2010 11:07:53 AM
  • I am really greatful for the advise it contains.I have found that once I get started doing my exercises I can get into them and feel better afterwards. I went through my closet about 6 months ago and gave all the skinny clothes away. I only kept the next size down. Which I have alot of. But I figuired if I lost more than that I would want new clothes .This program is a really easy one to stick with. I use the meal planner since I am single. I only substitute when I run out of something.Thanks again for the great advise - 1/25/2010 10:34:06 AM
    What a great article, I'm printing this out and hanging it on the fridge! - 1/25/2010 10:05:55 AM
  • This article is very inspiring! I have some things there I needed to be reminded of. - 1/25/2010 9:52:08 AM
  • Actually, it can get to be too late to start, which is one big reason it's important to start now. Very motivating article! Exercise has never been, and is not likely to become, one of my favorite things. My husband is my biggest motivator. He doesn't bug me, but always asks if I'm going today and when I return asks "how was the workout?" - and, he goes to his workout or swim usually 6 days a week. A friend or family member who motivates can be the most helpful tool you have. - 1/25/2010 8:02:58 AM
    This article is simple and true. - 1/25/2010 7:18:41 AM
